The exportability of the Bulldog redemption range has been confirmed following a distribution agreement with Dubai-based Warehouse of Games. The deal, which was secured last week, gives Warehouse of Games exclusive rights in all countries it’s active in throughout the Middle East.

Bulldog Managing Director, Peter Collinge, believes Warehouse of Games represent the perfect distribution partner as the brand makes its first foray into export markets. He stated: “I have been in close contact with Nabil Kassim and the team at Warehouse of Games since we first showcased the Bulldog line up at EAG 2018. Following a visit to the Dubai Entertainment Amusement and Leisure Exhibition (DEAL) last year to understand the market and subsequent evaluation it was clear they had a detailed understanding and knowledge of the sector and what products will work best.

“Their passion and enthusiasm for the business is right in line with mine. They have strong customer relationships and understand what the player wants which are all key approaches that we adopt in the UK. The opportunity to partner with a company with the very same values made it an easy decision.”

Bulldog is not adopting a one size fits all strategy, but rather fine tuning core concepts to meet the needs of each market it’s involved in. “As always we work with the operators and players to understand what games will work best” continued Collinge. “An example of this is our new 65” XL version of Ticketsaurus and Rex which has been developed for the big box style of FEC found in the United Arab Emirates where theatre and product presence is key.

“Ben Bones and Hamsters Ball are also released as 65” XL versions. One of the benefits of video based redemption (videmption) is that we can make subtle changes to audio or game play that may suit a particular market at the press of a button. Beat Ben the four player redemption game, focuses on the Great British institution of the Big Ben clock which is iconic the world over. The partnership with Warehouse of Games underpins our commitment to investing in games to suit all markets and, I believe, is a vindication of our commitment to engineer and manufacture here in the UK.”

The Bulldog range will be on the Warehouse of Games stand at DEAL 2019 which is taking place across 25th/26th/27th March at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Payments technology firm Nuvei Corp is going to buy SafeCharge International Group through an all-cash deal valued at $889 million. As per the agreement, SafeCharge shareholders would receive $5.55 in cash for each share held.

“The board is unanimously recommending this all-cash offer by Nuvei to buy SafeCharge at an attractive premium, which represents compelling value for SafeCharge shareholders. The price premium Nuvei is offering reflects SafeCharge’s leading position in the high growth e-commerce payments market, the strength of its own technology platform, its diversified and stable customer base and the significant experience in the payments industry of SafeCharge’s management team. It is for these reasons that the board is unanimously recommending this transaction to SafeCharge shareholders,” Roger Withers, Chairman of SafeCharge said.

“SafeCharge is the payment technology partner for the world’s most demanding businesses. Nuvei is one of the leading providers of technology-driven payment solutions to merchants and technology and distribution partners, primarily in the United States and Canada. Both companies have built strong positions in the payment sector in their respective markets, with minimal geographic, customer or industry overlap,” David Avgi, Chief Executive Officer of SafeCharge said.

“The Acquisition should enable SafeCharge to benefit from Nuvei’s North American footprint and sales and marketing capability to fulfil and accelerate its growth ambitions. The board believes that our businesses have similar shared entrepreneurial cultures and is confident that Nuvei’s plans to invest in and grow the SafeCharge business mean the proposed transaction is positive for SafeCharge and its stakeholders as a whole,” David Avgi added.

“We are very excited about the combination of SafeCharge and Nuvei, which will create a truly global, leading, payments technology solution provider with significant scale. Our businesses are highly complementary from multiple perspectives including geography, technology, key verticals and customers. We think the technology platform SafeCharge has developed is exceptional and will serve as the go-forward foundation from which we will continue to grow the combined business and provide best-in-class products and services to our customers and partners. Lastly, we look forward to welcoming SafeCharge’s highly experienced management team and employees to the Nuvei family,” Philip Fayer, Chairman and CEO of Nuvei said.

EGBA Calls on European Parliament and Commission to Protect Online Gambling Sector
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has called on the European Parliament and Commission to act in the online gambling sector to ensure Europe’s online gamblers are better protected.

Online betting represents more than 20% of the EU gambling market. EU countries have different rules for regulating online gambling and there are significant disparities in the quality of these national regulations, including the consumer protections available to online gamblers. The lack of common online gambling regulations fails to protect Europe’s players from often bogus and unsupervised websites operated from outside the EU.

“In 2019, there’s no reason why online gamblers living in one member country should be less protected than those living in another – but they are. That’s why EGBA is calling for common EU rules and better regulatory cooperation to ensure a more consistent and better standard of protection for all Europe’s online gamblers, including access to a national self-exclusion register and protection against threats from outside the EU,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary General, EGBA said.
